Why Is the NCA* Silent?

Joseph in IL sends in a cutting story...

Farming town disrupted by melee that included chain saw
The quiet of Big Sandy's block-long commercial district was disrupted one afternoon this week when two vehicles sped into town and their seven occupants got out and began fighting.

The brawl began when three men in a car pulled up in front of a coffee shop shortly after 2 p.m. Monday, and a pickup carrying two men and two women stopped behind them, Chouteau County Sheriff Vern Burdick said.
Considering that one person had "superficial" wounds and the remaining participants were unharmed, it's safe to bet that "Yakety Sax" should accompany any footage of this melee (thanks to Joseph for the mental image...) Fortunately, everyone involved was either completely inept in the ways of street fighting or perhaps too drunk to swing a fist properly. In any case, it seems like damage was minimal and no innocent bystanders were injured.

I've often joked that I'd like to include a chainsaw in my home defense plan, for one simple reason: If someone does break into my house, it's most likely going to be in the middle of the night, while I'm sleeping. Sure, showing up at the top of the stairs with an AR-15 or shotgun would be scary, but imagine a McCulloch with a 2' bar in full throttle, being wielded by a 6' tall shaved head biker looking guy in his tidy whiteys... I envision the home invaders leaving comical human silhouette prints in the door leaving...

Remember, when chainsaws are outlawed, only outlaws will have chainsaws...

That is all.

*Why, the National Chainsaw Association, of course!

I should add, if its anything like my chain saw, you'll spend 15 minutes screwing with the choke, the prime bulb, just to realize you had the flipped the on/off switch to off while pulling on one of the first pulls, and now you've flooded the carb and need to let it sit while you have a therapeutic beer.

Then while drinking the beer, the wife comes up with something else for you need to do, so you leave the chainsaw sitting outside till it rains.

and then explaining to the police, why you have a chainsaw in your bedroom, and then having to clean up the pee and shit left by the home invaders inside the house, the porch, the driveway, down the street....

As a six foot tall bearded, bald (actual) biker looking guy I think this is exactly the right way to confront an intruder! Heh!
